Q:Would bees be an issue if planted in the front yard close to the porch?
by|Oct 13, 2023

Answer This Question

A:  Hi msdiy, Thanks for your inquiry! The Lo & Behold 'Blue Chip' Jr. displays fragrant blue/purple flowers all summer. It attracts bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds while resisting deer. It's the perfect small shrub for anywhere in the garden. This shrub will reach 1.5-2 feet tall and wide at maturity, thrives within zones 5-9 and requires full sun (at least 8 hours) per day. Prune in spring, after the new growth emerges. The warmer your climate, the more you should cut back your butterfly bush each spring. Left unpruned, large butterfly bushes can become “second story” plants: their flowers form way up at the top so you can’t enjoy them unless you have a second-story window. I recommend planting this shrub at least a few feet away from the porch area if you wish, but bees should not be an issue. Bees as a general rule, are not aggressive unless they feel threatened, and will leave humans alone if they are left alone :) Please contact us with questions at helpdesk@provenwinnersdirect.com, via phone at 855-797-5268, or chat with us online. We are here to help! --Sarah

    Q:how fast will the bush grow
    by|May 3, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Butterfly bush is known for its rapid growth, up to two feet in height per year or more. It can reach its mature size in just one or two growing seasons. This shrub option is low maintenance, only requiring annual pruning in late winter to encourage spring blooms and maintain a compact shape. Prune in spring, after the new growth emerges. The warmer your climate, the more you should cut back your butterfly bush each spring. Left unpruned, large butterfly bushes can become “second story” plants: their flowers form way up at the top so you can’t enjoy them unless you have a second-story window.

          The Blue Chip Jr. Butterfly Bush came in with dead leaves that fell off after I took it out of the box. There was a very small root that also looked dead. I will attach a photo of what the plant looks like today. Still looks dead.

          Hi Sarah ~ Thank you for your review. We are sorry your order did not meet your expectations. We guarantee that all plants are healthy and vigorous when they leave our greenhouse. However, as living things, plants always have the potential to become stressed or damaged during shipping. The good news is that this is almost always only a cosmetic issue, that does not impact a plant’s overall health, because they have a strong root system. Please email us at helpdesk@provenwinnersdirect.com and provide us your order number along with photos of the damaged plants. We look forward to hearing from you.
          Kind regards,

            Disappointed
            I couldn’t wait for the plants to deliver. When they did I opened up the box the next morning and planted. Needless to say, it was not what I expected. One plant may not make it and the other 3 are hanging on. I went ahead and planted them to see if I can revive them. I will NEVER but plants via delivery again

                half good,half bad
                Two of the four plants look healthy and ready to go. The other two should not have left the nursery. One attached leaf between them and its not like the fell off in transit I found just a few loose ones in the container. Terrible cost to benefit ratio.

                      I made the mistake of looking at this beautiful plant in the photo. These are tiny little plants for the price. Really Home Depot?
